Yummy Sunday: Hawaii's Soul Food

Poke
Haleiwa Joe's, North Shore, Oahu, Hawaii
(fresh ahi in soy-sesame marinade)

World-renowned Island chef Sam Choy calls Poke (pronounced po-keh) as "Hawaii's soul food." Poke which means, "to slice or cut", and usually served as an appetizer, consists of bite-sized pieces of raw, fresh fish mixed with seaweed and kukui nut relish.

That might take me a little getting used to. Love the bit of green on top. Is that seaweed?
